Dallas prosecutor fired for berating Uber driver

14 November 2017

In a statement, DA Faith Johnson says Warner will not face criminal charges, but her behavior is contrary to the office's core principle of integrity and will not be tolerated.

"I said, "Should I make a left up here?' and she refused to answer me," Platt told the Dallas Morning News".

Added Warner, 'Who are they going to believe?

Warner's full apology released to the media addresses the incident: "I cringe whenever I hear or think about the things that I said that night".

Warner: "Then we'll wait for the cops". Platt did not, however, intend for Warner to lose her job. That's when the driver chose to pull over and asked that his passenger leave the vehicle.

When he stopped and ordered her from the auto, she refused to leave until a police unit called by Platt arrived. "I want the cops to come so that they can fuck you up, that's what I want". "You had the opportunity to take me home".

"One of the main reasons I forgive her is I know she was intoxicated, that's another reason - that's no excuse to treat someone like that just because you're intoxicated", he told the Dallas Morning News. "She actually hit me".

"You are a legitimate retard", the woman says.

"I didn't want to get her in trouble", Platt told the newspaper before reconsidering and ending the ride by asking Warner to get out.

While waiting for police, Warner accused the driver of keeping her in the vehicle against her will. "I'm a district attorney".

"She said "I'm the DA" and she said [to the cop] 'Can I speak with you?' and he pulled her aside away from me," Platt said. Just take me home. "She responds, "....now I'm pissed the [expletive] off. I'm an assistant district attorney, so shut the **** up!

Warner continues to berate and call him names on the recording.

"After careful consideration and a thorough investigation, I have made a decision to terminate Ms. Warner", Johnson said in a statement, according to the New York Post.

Adding, 'As public servants, we represent the people of Dallas County and are examples of justice, professionalism, and ethical behavior both inside and outside of the courtroom. I will not waiver on my expectation of the highest integrity for myself or my staff. But the law enforcement official simply asked him if he "was good" and when Platt reluctantly confirmed that he was, Warner left with the officer in his auto. But the cop and Warner, who was 'let off the hook, ' left in a police vehicle, he told the Dallas Morning News. Warner has worked for the district attorney's office for six years as a prosecutor in crimes against children.

Cpl. DeMarquis Black, a spokesman for the Dallas Police Department, said the agency has contacted the district attorney's office and is investigating the incident. Platt was the driver who arrived.

Warner in turn took exception to Platt, telling the man, he was 'never going to work again' and that she 'knows people, ' according to the Uber driver.

"We'll wait for the cops then if that's what you think is appropriate", she continued.

Jody Warner is seen in a photo obtained by CBS Dallas station KTVT. She wrote, in part, "I am so excited to be a ROOKIE on Team Blonde this year and to participate in the incredible organization that is BvB Dallas ('Blondes v. Brunettes')".
